The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

"When there are many dozens of countries where poverty consumes most of the population, and where corrupt governments deliberately make the problem much worse, why would the U.N. study poverty in America? The answer is politics." U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley

Quote II

You might ask, "Williams, without affirmative action, what would the University of Pennsylvania Law School do about diversity and inclusion?" I'd say that's Penn's problem. Walter E. Williams

Quote III

He likes women's basketball. Surely, THAT will be enough for Susan Collins. Ann Coulter

Quote IV

“We have a bunch of folks starting off life already behind, born into communities that don’t have a lot of opportunity .....looming threat of automation and displacement.” Stockton Mayor Michael Tubbs

So let uneducated, illiterate, non-English speaking swarms invade your city Mr. Mayor.

Venezuela once a prosperous country. Now a shit hole. Let's send Bernie Sanders there to help out.

What this really says is "take out oil [oh, and by the way, that's at record lows in production and exports in its own right], and you have just about nothing," an economy weaker and lower than Haiti's. Strong economies are built on exports. And if your socialist central planners dictate the building of an economy on the high price of oil at the expense of everything else, not only will you not have an economy worth looking at except as you would a roadside crash, but you won't even have the oil, either.

Who knew? The USA is a very dangerous place for women.

A study is circulating that purports to make the United States out as the tenth most dangerous country for women to live. Tenth, ahead of countries like China, Iran, and Iraq. The Thomson Reuters Foundation performed the study and it has caught the eye of progressives and media alike, particularly on social media.

Funny thing, my wife and three daughters feel very safe in this country.

Remember the cartoons with explosives and the initials TNT on the product? Well, there is a new product in town.

The chemistry of explosives is a delicate matter. A little less carbon, a little more nitrogen, and the right amount of oxygen can transform a relatively inert substance into quite the showstopper.

For more than 100 years, TNT has been the premier mixture of chemicals for blowing things up, and it's even used as a metric to measure the yield of nuclear explosions and other monumental blasts. But new research out of Los Alamos National Laboratory and the Army Research Laboratory has discovered a new chemical, bis-oxadiazole (C6H4N6O8), that has many of the advantages of TNT, is thought to be less toxic to produce, and makes a bigger bang.

Be careful for what you wish pray for.

During a holy month when he was supposed to be fasting, a Muslim inmate in the Mecklenburg County Jail still wanted his lunch.

So Travaile Speller has sued, claiming that his jailers and the Mecklenburg Sheriff's Office discriminated against his religious practice by forcing him to eat only two meals each day during Ramadan.

"That is clearly depriving me of necessary calories, as well as the recommend(ed) daily volume of nutrients that my body requires to function normally," Speller says in his hand-written complaint. "They are intentionally eliminating one whole meal (lunch) which is cruel and unusual punishment directed towards all Muslims."
